The Den of Angels 10th Anniversary celebration continues with our Photography Contest! 

This years theme is “Recreating the Past.” Contestants must use their dolls to replicate a photo of their choice. Any photo taken before the year 2000 may be used, whether it’s a Berenice Abbott or one your mother’s Christmas snapshots from 1989.

Four prizes will be awarded to the entries that earn the most votes. The winner gets first choice from the following prizes:

Any currently available FreedomTeller ensemble in the winner’s choice of size, generously donated by FreedomTeller.

A custom face-up, generously donated by SDink.

A custom pair of urethane eyes, generously donated by DollBakery.

An apothecary set of acids and poisons, generously donated by Atrium Hoshino.

Deadline for entries is Saturday, August 23rd, 11:59pm EDT

I wonder, would a piece of painted art be okay? And, do we have to submit it on the DoA site, or is here okay?

Painted art does not meet the guidelines for this contest ( we’ve done that contest in the past ).
All entries must be submitted on Den of Angels using the entry form posted in the contest rules. Entries are posted anonymously and DoA members vote for their favorites, so posting anything offsite that could link you to a particular entry will disqualify you from the contest.

This year is a very special milestone in DOA’s history, and as we commemorate our tenth anniversary, we would like our Triathlon to be about celebrating your dolls.

This year’s theme is “Exaltation”
1. a feeling or state of extreme happiness.
2. the action of elevating someone in rank, power, or character. the action of praising someone or something highly.

The doll you choose to take on this journey with you should be your most favorite doll - the one with whom you have the most history, the one from whom you hope never to be parted, the face that launched a thousand clicks.

The grand prize for accumulating the most points across three feats of skill is:

A VOLKS FULL CHOICE SYSTEM DOLL from VolksUSA’s new online Full Choice System in September!

The Great Triathlon has begun!

The first challenge: My Angel!

Make a pair of wings for your doll out of repurposed and recycled materials plus a $20 budget for anything else you might need. You have one week to make your favorite doll some fabulous wings. Go! Go! GO!!

Submission deadline is Saturday night! You’ve still got time to get crafty!

The Couture Contest is up and running! Put your sewing skills to the test and win a full doll from DollsheCraft or FreakStyleBJD!

Does anyone else get extremely frustrated using Den of Angels? →

I would delete my account, but it was a pain in the butt to get an account in the first place. Sure, I don’t post very often, but like I’ve fussed before, I always seem to have trouble finding anything worthy to say, and when I do try to start a thread, it’s usually in the wrong place or about the…

We’re sorry you are frustrated! There is an FAQ here that covers some basics, and you can always post a question in Ask the Moderators. Any inquiry you post there will only be visible to yourself and the Mod team, and we usually answer questions within 24 hours or less. It’s a huge forum with a ton of information to organize, but we are always open to suggestions on how to make the user interface more intuitive.
